Had to try Mcdo’s #FlavorsOfJapan because, well, hello, Japan. For the ebi burger, I like the light, semi-sweet sauce and the shrimp patty’s tempura coating. However, the shrimp itself is not as juicy nor as flavorful as other shrimp burgers I’ve tried, but it’s still a decent try. I prefer the juicy beef patty of the teriyaki burger and its mayo. I wasn’t too happy with the teriyaki sauce, though. I felt it was either too sweet or too salty and also too much. The Nori fries were okay, but I prefer Tokyo Tokyo’s nori-wasabi fries as they have a good balance of flavors. Anyway, just give your fries a good shake to evenly coat them with the Nori powder. Lastly, the strawberry sakura McFloat tasted like medicine at first, but after a few sips, it became tolerable. Generally, I am not a fan of floats because they are too sweet – I just wanted to try this one.
So would I order these again? The float, definitely not. Also, I’d rather have plain salted Mcdo fries or honey-butter shake-shake fries (or barbecue). As for the burgers, hmmmm…. I’d probably want to get the teriyaki one again, but I’d request for less sauce.
I wonder what Mcdonald’s in Japan offers this season… hoping to find out soon!
